I found myself near Metamora, which I had visited back in 2011, so I went into town and looked around again.
I stumbled across St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, built in a German Hallkirche style, where the buttresses are engaged to the curtain wall. There are several blind windows, as well.
The rectory is attached to the west of the church.
I also came across this house, which originally was in the Queen Anne style but like many examples, has lost much of the millwork.

Hi Chris. Former Diocese of Peoria communications guy here again. Minor thing, but there’s no “h” at the end of Metamora. I do love the updates from Central Illinois! Take care.
Oops! I don’t know why I keep thinking there’s an H on the end! Thanks for the correction.
This building looks badly modified; certainly the square louvers of the belfry are not original, though they do suggest that there’s still a bell up there.
